Office of Youth Development (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This publication describes some of the issues and problems dealt with by Involvement of Mexican-Americans in Gainful Endeavors (IMAGE), a national, non-profit organization aimed at improving the social and economic conditions of Mexican-Americans. One of the main sources of concern for this group is the high dropout rate of Mexican-American youths. In response to this, the IMAGE Yearn to Learn Centers have been developed throughout the Southwest to provide youths with counseling, tutoring, and other supportive services to motivate students to return to or stay in school. This report focuses on the needs of Mexican-American youth and the services provided by the IMAGE Yearn to Learn Centers. (RWP)
